By Michael Jackson

Moonwalk was the first book written by Michael Jackson.

It's his autobiography, which he was encoraged to write by book editor Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis (wife of U.S president Joh F Kennedy).

Its Michael in his own words up until 1988, which was around the same time as the Bad album.

Michael talks of his early days with his brothers in the Jackson 5 and the Jacksons. He also talks about his many famous friends at the time including Paul McCartney, Berry Gordy, Fred Astaire, Marlon Brando and Katherine Hepburn.

He also covers what plasitic surgery he had had up to that time as well as commenting on the way he is portrayed in the media and the many untrue stories they print.

There's also segments of colour and black and white photos in the book.

At the start of the books there's also a self portrait by Michael, with his glove and Fedora, which is signed MJ 1998 (not 1988).

It also features a print copy of his signature.

Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis wrote the following forward to the book:

"What can one say about Michael Jackson? He is one of the world's most acclaimed entertainers, an innovative and exciting songwriter whose dancing seems to defy gravity and has been heralded by teh likes of Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly. His public is perhaps unaware of the extent of his dedication to his craft. Restless, seldom satisfied, he is a perfectionist who is constantly challenging himself. To many people Michael Jackson seems an elusive personality, but to those who work with him, he is not. This talented artist is a sensitive man, warm, funny, and full of insight. Michael's book Moonwalk, provides a startling glimpse of the artist at work and the artist in reflection.
